Here are my must have picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I’ll explain later because I’m running late to work… haha!
This morning I had an unplanned early wake up that lead to a little too much extra time before work to peruse the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. The next thing I knew I had 30 minutes to shower and leave so thank you for waiting it out for me to finish this post 🙂
My game plan for the sale was to shop online and pick up in-store, so I knew the items I wanted most were reserved for me in the store before I drove 30 minutes to my nearest Nordstrom. Normally, I got for new boots and a few little things here and there, but this year I wanted to focus on really good basics that I will get regular wear out of, like basic tops, a good pair of jeans, and comfy layers for work and the weekend.
I’m always cold at work year round, so I knew picking up a few different cardigans would be a good investment to my wardrobe and out of all the options I ended up with these three. A must have for me this year is finally trying the Barefoot Dreams Circle Cardigan that always sells out while I contemplate the price tag, so this year there was was no hesitation other than deciding the color.
This isn’t a piece that I normally go for but I was intrigued by the design and color and wanted to reserve it to try on. I’ll let y’all know what I think of it when I get it.
My current comfy LBP is in serious need of tossing and this one with the ruffle detail will be the perfect replacement! Drop ruffle details can be a hit or miss with my hips, so I hope it fits! I can picture so many different outfits around the dress, so I’m excited to style it.
I wasn’t expecting to get a new olive green coat because I have one but I’ve never been happy with how it fit on me, so I’m hoping this one is a more flattering cut and I wear it more because I think they are a fall staple.
I love the little bow tie sleeve detail on this otherwise boring plain white top (even though I can never have too many of boring white tops for work!).
Another Barefoot Dreams item I regretted not picking up last year. It’s actually been in my cart ever since but I didn’t want to pay full price when I knew the sale price in the back of my head! I don’t neeeeeeed a new robe, but since I live in my $12 Tuesday Morning robe I thought I wanted to treat myself to this one.
The holy grail AG jeans… These are always one of the first things to sell out, so this year I wanted to see what all the fuss is about with these! I would never pay full price for them, and even the sale price is a little hard to swallow, but I’ll let y’all know if they’re worth it after I get to try them on. I ordered two sizes to be safe since I’m not familiar with how they fit.
Out of everything in my closet I get the most wear out of my basic tees, so I wanted to pick up a few of these to try at under $16. They look thicker than most I’ve seen, and I’m hoping that’s a good thing! They will work perfectly under all the jackets and cardigans I ordered.
I wasn’t very tempted in the beauty department because most of the options we’re large gift sets and unless I knew it was a product I already love I didn’t want to spend more to get more. I did purchase this set because I love the scent of the deodorant and it lasts me forever. I think I buy like 2 a year somehow, it’s crazy.
Anything I missed?? What’s your favorite from the sale?!
